    Attorney Profile

    Focusing his practice exclusively on family law matters, Douglas Wolf is the founder of his eponymous professional law corporation. Located in Woodland Hills, California, he provides representation to clients throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Admitted to practice before all California state courts since 1979, Mr. Wolf is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. He has been certified as a family law mediator as well as a collaborative family law attorney.

    A significant portion of Mr. Wolf's client base is comprised of people who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to deal with such related issues as property division, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary, his extensive training in mediation and collaborative law, as well as his experience in arbitration, often allow him to help his clients reach an accord using those methods of alternative dispute resolution. Mr. Wolf also works with clients whose marriages have already been dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting court orders.

    A graduate of Southwestern Law School, Mr. Wolf is frequently asked to deliver presentations on topics related to his practice area to community groups and state and local bar associations. He has received numerous awards for his legal and community service, including one from Society's League Against Molestation for his dedication to the protection of children. Mr. Wolf's professional affiliations include the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association.
